Realize an Augmented Reality experience so as to create an exhibition of virtual architecture models, without providing for the physical presence of the models themselves. The brief pursues principles of sustainability and innovativeness, in line with the identity of the applicant realities.
For the realization of the experience, it was chosen to work with the environments provided by Meta’s social networks, thus Instagram and Facebook. The physical part of the exhibition, consisting of a series of white, neutral cubes with a positioning grid on the upper face, was intended to position itself as an identity reality within the showroom spaces. Affixed to each cube, a qrcode allowed visitors to access experiences related to the individual building, preferably positioned on the top face of each element, but potentially elsewhere as well.
The models received were reproduced using photorealistic materials to give the effect of bringing real architecture into an interior space. Taking advantage of the possibilities offered by the technology used, the virtual models were chosen to be scalable, to make them experienceable at different sizes.
